Area residents attending a meeting on the Red Barn, Monday, decided the simpler is better.
The Red Barn is located adjacent to the old county nursing home building on Falling Creek Road. It was built in the 1930s and served the county poor house, which was still in operation there at the time. The building may be a Sears kit barn, although Elizabeth Gilboy, director of Virginia Tech's Community Design Assistance Center, said that researchers aren't positive. She said that they have a Sears catalog from that time that shows a barn with a floor plan just like it.
